About Graham Nash: Legendary artist and GRAMMY-Award winner Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee – with Crosby, Stills & Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted twice into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN. Towering above virtually everything that Graham Nash has accomplished stands the litany of songs that he has written and introduced to the soundtrack of the past half-century. His remarkable body of work, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies opus, includes the classic union of Crosby, Stills & Nash and continues all the way to This PathTonight (2016), his most recent solo album.
In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which delivers an engrossing, no-holds-barred look back at his remarkable career and the music that defined a generation. The book landed him on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Also, in recognition for his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth. While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist whose work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide.
